CINCINNATI – Forward Isaiah Philmore spent last night sleeping on a too-small couch in the Xavier locker room.
Burst pipes in a dorm sent a half-dozen Musketeers scurrying for places to sleep in the early-morning hours Wednesday. They were getting ready to move into a hotel short-term while trying to keep up on the court.
Other than the flood waters, the Musketeers (12-3, 2-0 Big East) have had a smooth transition to their new league. They've beaten St. John's and Butler to start conference play, extending their winning streak to seven games.
They're tied for second with No. 8 Villanova, a game behind Creighton. They host Marquette (9-6, 1-1) on Thursday night.
